forpetessake: You can find a lot of interest in adapted lenses in Sony forums, but you can find very little interest in Fuji forums.
The explanation is obvious, the only reason for that interest is due to the fact that manufacturer isn't able to produce a useful range of good quality, reasonably sized and priced lenses.

m4/3 has been around since 2007, so lots of adapters.

Because it crushed the old lenses like a bug, as far as wide-open performance is concerned. But, old lenses in many cases afford some other attribute people are after.

justmeMN: I don't have either one, but perhaps a GoPro Forum and a Drone Photography Forum would be in order.

GoPro is already tanking, as will drones once the U.S.'s new draconian controls on them come into play.

photominion: If you're not only commited to mirrorless, make sure to check out my Blog too :)

I focus on 50mm lenses on a Canon full frame.

Another company where the move to adapted lenses was caused by them not having any decent wide angles. (Since rectified by Canon) Fredmiranda and other forums had heavy coverage of different lenses used on Canon DSLR's.

Pretty much true. After the novelty (I owned almost 200 lenses that I adapted to the original mirror-less, the Panasonic G1) wears off, you do hope your camera's company is producing cutting-edge modern lenses for those times when resolution, sharpness, contrast do matter.

RichRMA: I HATE the white background on most web pages. It strains the eyes. White text on black is better, I wish more websites used it.

They may get to a stage where you can tailor a website's basic colours to suit your own preferences. But it'll be a while in coming.

Phones as cameras reminds me of what happened with popular music in the last 15 years. It went from catering to every different taste to primarily catering to pre-teen girls and 20-somethings who frequent Starbucks.. Phones are the "autotuned" of the camera world.

scottcraig: Well, when all is said and done one can hardly expect the camera of an iPhone or any other mobile device to compare to that of a DSLR. I do however find it nothing short of hilarious how camera manufacturers continue to profess how astounding their cameras are with the hopes of improving market sales.

The unwashed need educating.

RichRMA: When will modularity come to Japanese cameras like mirrorless and DSLRs?

A slightly larger (than current) m4/3 to FF camera with swappable sensor packs would be welcomed by a lot of people.

The RED stuff is very good. Who cares if they look like miniatures from the movie, "Transformers?"

Marcelobtp: Nice lens image quality. Surprised to see usable 1.4 aperture.

Nonsense. Every 85mm f/1.4 lens I've seen is usable wide open from Nikon's $1800 unit to Samyang's $300 lens.

thgun: Hi. I grew up being told by my Dad that Leica were the Rolls Royce of Cameras in the days of film photography. Now we have digital photography I don't see that anymore. I know their lenses are of the highest quality but the electronics I'm not sure. If Leica is so well up there then why dont you ever see anyone with one especially professional photographers.

How would you know what pros all use?

Now please Epson, use them to make movie-viewing and VR headsets instead of people having to use those RIDICULOUS units you have to shove a cellphone into!!

James Pilcher: What an odd choice for Gear of the Year. In one respect, it's nice that good low end kit gets some recognition. On the other hand, there must be more deserving gear out there for consideration. I do not criticize Carey's choice, it just catches me by surprise.

Get the torches.
